Electric watches, divers’ watches, novelty watches, cool 1960’s watches, and elite watches like the Rolex V and Chronograph I: it’s time for wristwatches to rule the market. More and more people are delving into this collecting area, with auctions and dealers fueling interest. Take a look at what’s available and what it’s worth, along with an overview of developments in watchmaking decade-by-decade. Throughout, two-page color spreads compare and contrast pairs of related watches, with analyses of why one is more valuable than the other—whether because of age, authenticity, rarity, maker, material, marks, lack of defects, or additions and restoration. Also included: an illustrated section on fakes and replicas and how to spot them, as well as facts on key designers, manufacturers, and technological features.
